I'm very depressed and I don't know what to do, About two

Customer Question

I'm very depressed and I don't know what to do
JA: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?
Customer: About two years but it's really bad now. I've put on a lot of weight (100 lbs) and I don't seem to care. I've told my doctor but he gives me antidepressants but it's doing absolutely nothing. He keeps telling me that i have to get angry and say enough is enough but I can't move. I sit all day long. I don't know what to do
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Besides carrying another person on my body and hating myself no I guess not
